(We’re betting granite still wins if you count all of the kitchens built without a professional designer.)Quartz has many advantages over granite, including that it’s impervious to stains and stands up to acidic foods, and it does this without ever needing to be sealed.

It’s also far more scratch and chip resistant—and it’s generally considered a greener choice because it’s made from waste stone and therefore doesn’t require mining slabs or shipping them around the globe, both of which are carbon-intensive processes for natural granite and marble.

Lots of class, charm & character, great location in this recently remodeled home featuring kitchen with eating area next to a large vaulted family room with a screened in porch and outside deck.
